Flowertown Players

The mission of The Flowertown Players, Inc., is to produce and present quality community theater, to encourage and promote educational and literary performing arts projects for all segments of the tri-county population, and to provide a venue for thespians, artists, technicians, and other creative people to practice their crafts. The Theatre on the Square in downtown Summerville was built in 1935 and flourished as a movie house until the early 1960s. Established in 1976, The Flowertown Players bought and renovated the 209-seat theatre. With state-of-the-art lighting and sound equipment and special facilities specifically for the disabled, the James F. Dean Community Theatre is listed as part of the Historic District in the National Register of Historic Districts. Since 1976, The Flowertown Players has been the only theatre company in Summerville and the only continuously running community theatre in Dorchester County.

Upcoming Shows for Flowertown Players

Start Date: Dec 8 2016 - 8:00pm

It’s Christmas Eve, 1943, and the Feddington Players are broadcasting from a hole-in-the-wall studio in Newark, NJ, and set to present their contemporary “take” on Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. Whether it’s the noisy plumbing, missed cues, electrical blackouts, or the over-the-top theatrics of veteran actor, but radio novice, William St. Claire, this radio show is an entertaining excursion into the mayhem and madness of a live radio show.

Start Date: Dec 11 2016 - 7:00pm

Jason’s having a tough week at work. Profits are down, lawsuits are up, and worst of all, his boss has begun to suspect the truth: that Jason’s trying to ruin the company by keeping its customers alive. See, Jason’s been hired at Legacy Letters to help clients craft the perfect suicide note. But he seems to have his own agenda… A subversive, darkly comic play about opportunism and that elusive thing called redemption.

Start Date: Dec 16 2016 - 8:00pm

Are you looking for something different for Christmas this year? Tired of Christmas Carol and Gift of the Magi? Well, this is the story for you: eight reindeer dishing about the real Santa.

Yes, the reindeer finally speak up and – believe us – they do not hold back!

Start Date: Dec 17 2016 - 3:00pm

Legally Blonde JR. follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. When Elle’s high school boyfriend, Warner, dumps her and heads to Harvard, claiming she’s not “serious” enough, Elle takes matters into her own hands, crafting a showy song-and-dance personal essay and charming her way into law school. Befriending classmate, Emmett, and spunky hairdresser, Paulette, along the way, Elle finds that books and looks aren’t mutually exclusive.

Start Date: Jan 8 2017 - 7:00pm

What do three philosophical monkeys, a made up language, and a dating disaster have in common? They're all a part of David Ives's hilarious and poetically poignant masterpiece, All in the Timing. Six short plays take Flowertown's stage in what Time Magazine calls, "theatre that aerobicizes the brain and tickles the heart." This collection of one-acts slays audiences with wit, charm, and comedic wordplay. "Ives is a mordant comic who has put the 'play' back in playwright...A wondrous wordmaster," praises Time magazine.

Start Date: Jan 26 2017 - 8:00pm

Christmas in New York can be a magical time unless you’re Sam Peliczowski, a down-on-his-luck actor who works the reservation line at one of Manhattan’s trendiest restaurants. Caught in a maelstrom of scheming socialites, high maintenance celebrities, deceitful co-workers, and an egomaniacal boss, Sam must juggle it all. Fully Committed is a hilarious ode to the unappreciated worker brought to life by one performer playing 40 diverse characters.
